More about the Wine: "Eremo San Quirico is the winery’s top red wine, made with 100% aglianico grapes sourced from an old vineyard that carries the same name. It is a deeply concentrated wine, ruby red in color. Rich and full on the palate, smooth with aromas of red fruit, cherries and spices. This is aglianico in its purest form and it will be best enjoyed with red meat dishes,game, aged cheeses and rich, hearty meals. Nativ was founded by Mario Ercolino, renowned winemaker for some ot the top estates in Campania and Italy, and his wife Roberta Pirone. The brand name ‘Nativ’ and their wines aim at the best possible representation of the local wines and varietals grown on approx. 15 hectare of estate-owned vinyards located in Irpinia, near Paternopoli and Taurasi, an area famous for fertile soils of volcanic origin, rich in minerals, calcium carbonate and ash, the latter caused by the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which struck Pompeii in 79 AD. These constituents are concentrated in the grapes, resulting in features of uniqueness and distinctiveness in the wines. The line includes all of the traditional wines from the region and two beautiful cru bottlings that received near-perfect scores from renowned Italian critic Luca Maroni. A fantastic new addition to the growing Montcalm porfolio" - Importer [+]
